iOS 4.1 brings a whole new look to Apple's Game Center

Just a quick note for anyone keeping track of the changes in Apple’s iOS 4.1: Game Center, Apple’s unreleased (outside of the developer network) Xbox Live-esque gaming hub, just got a massive visual overhaul.

The old skin (shown on left) was down right depressing, filled with heavy blues and endless shadows. The new one, however, is pretty gorgeous. With vibrant colors and carefully crafted textures, it reminds me of Ramp Champ — or anything else made by Iconfactory, for that matter.

Though the vast majority of iPhone owners have yet to even see Game Center, I’m interested to know: Which one do you prefer — ol’ blue, or the felt-tastic new billiards theme?
